Yammer is evolving into Viva Engage

Today we are announcing our intention to rebrand Yammer into Viva Engage in order to provide a consistent and delightful experience to our customers. This change will happen across all existing Yammer surfaces– including web, mobile, and integrations (Embed, SharePoint and Outlook) and will occur throughout 2023. In the coming months you can expect Yammer to become Viva Engage through the update of brand elements like logo, app icon and name. 

When this will happen: 

The first stage of this rebrand happened last year with the rebranding of the Yammer Communities app for Teams into Viva Engage. The rest of rebrand will occur incrementally, starting with the mobile apps (iOS & Android) and the Communities app for Outlook updating their app icons and name in March 2023. We will communicate other endpoints like the web and embed experiences as we make progress. We will continue sending message center alerts and provide details and resources to help your organization understand, prepare, and communicate these changes.  

As we prepare for the Yammer mobile app changes, we will add an in-app banner with relevant information around the switch. Users will start seeing this notice in late February.

How this will affect your organization: 

There will be no impact to the existing profile, posts, bookmarks, etc. All rebranding updates don’t require additional actions; changes will be automatic. Outside of branding changes, there are no changes to the features, capabilities and investments for Microsoft 365 customers. You will continue to experience and benefit from the power of Viva Engage just as you did with Yammer.
